Pretty sure you don't lol! But if I could it wouldn't be twins!

What are the odds?
I'd say eggsactly 4 in (insert how many eggs you've bought in 25-30 years here).

Might be a good day to pick up a lottery ticket.

I don't know about the odds, but last year I bought a dozen eggs that yielded 2 with double yolks. Surprisingly, although labeled large eggs, they were actually on the small size.

What are the odds?!
Odds are you're seeing double after a little too much Vino

True story time- My mom bought a dozen eggs from a farmer friend and asked for a dozen double yolks. She had me and my brother in the kitchen making scrambled eggs. She didn't tell my brother but I knew she had bought them. She tapped the egg twice on the side of the pan before opening the egg. You should have seen my brother's eyes! "Wow,Mom, how'd you do that? " "I tapped it twice, see?" as she did it again. Of course another double yolk popped out. My brother says "What id you tap it 3 times?" "Let's see." Tap-tap-tap and of course out popped a triple! She had my gullible brother believing it!
